11am - 3:30pm
I am participating in the Art in the Park show again this year. Those of you who follow my blog, know that I participated last year also. Here is a link to my blog post from the last show.
I learned a few things last time that I am planning to do this time - and I'll be doing a few things differently. (and probably skipping a few things too).
First, I am staying with one genre this time - architectural. I plan on combining some paintings from last year along with some new ones. But all will center around architecture & buildings.
I am also framing all paintings except for those on gallery wrapped canvas. Those have the paintings continued on all 4 sides, making it unnecessary to frame them. (but they can be framed if a buyer so chooses to have it done). The bulk of the paintings are my 9x12 canvas sheets, which I have matted & framed for the show.
I am adding 3 of my tall-thin paintings that are 6x12 - all of entryways. I have those mounted on hardboard & framed. I found floating black frames on sale (1/2 price at Michaels) - they were intended to hold 3 small photographs each, however, when I removed the cut out mat, I found the frame size a perfect 6x12. Each entryway painting sits perfectly in the grooves (glass has been removed). Here's a photo of them framed (excuse the angle & lighting, this was a quick shot on the easel). I love how they look, and I will probably do more of this series sometime after the show:
I also decided to offer inexpensive matted prints of some of my paintings (architectural & also landscapes). Simple 5x7 good-quality laser prints, matted to 8x10 - perfect to buy & frame as you wish. All are prints of signed original paintings - and I have each print available in either a black or white mat.
Any of you in the Paramus, NJ area that weekend, please stop by. I will be 1 of 100 artists at the show (pray for good weather please). And if any of you would like any of these 8x10 prints, please let me know - and if you have a specific painting of mine that you'd like in the smaller size, let me know which one!
